Bystanders Save Woman Jumping to Death (Video)

| by Emily Smith

Bystanders were caught on video rushing to rescue a woman after she climbed to the other side of an overpass bridge.

The middle-aged woman, dressed in a pink jacket, pulled herself over the railing of the bridge and hovered there before another woman with an umbrella noticed her.

The passerby quickly moved toward the woman in the pink puffer jacket, who seemed to have second thoughts as she gripped a concrete pole.

Finding it impossible to pull the woman back onto the bridge, the woman with the umbrella yelled for help. A group of people eventually crowded onto the bridge and pulled the woman over, leading her to safety off screen.

It is uncertain where the incident occurred.

The video has gone viral since it was posted on LiveLeak with more than 50,000 views in 24 hours.
